Sweet Andy and Maria,
I am so very sorry that Aunt Rae had to go through the experience of her illness that had to be so hard. I am tremendously saddened by her death. I am sorry that we could not be there at the end and to attend her services. Ed and I have been so sick lately. I have lost the right to drive and Ed's doctor said it would not be good for him to drive that far, due to his heart and Diabetes. I have prayed for her since hearing of her illness. I truly loved her and all of you. I am so glad she was closer to you amd your family. I know that had to ease the pain for all of you.
Having worked in Hospice for 15 years, I know she was well cared for and about with the nurses. She is surely in a great place in heaven as she was just so sweet and caring. It hurts my heart to even think about what all of you have been through! I love you guys! Ardie & Ed
